Re: g7000 wifi

No at that time when that laptop was made there was a BIOS whitelist which means only the HP approved and distributed wireless cards could be used. This is the list of approved cards from the Manual:

 

Integrated wireless local area network (WLAN) options by way of wireless
module:


Intel PRO Wireless 3945 802.11a/b/g and 802.11b/g

Broadcom 802.11a/b/g

Atheros AR2425 WLAN b/g

 

None of these is an "N" adapter so your laptop cannot work with an "N" adapter.
